“Kyla Brox knows how to handle the gears... the Mancunian vocalist lets songs percolate, raising the temperature by degrees, then giving it both barrels in the final stretch. It's a thrilling tactic.” - Henry Yates, The Blues Magazine

"An authentic soul diva… sensitive, sexy, and with infinite reserves of sassiness" - City Life

Kyla Brox's scintillating, multi-faceted new album, Pain & Glory marks her ascendancy to the very first rank of British singers. Kyla has been a professional musician since the age of twelve – first in her father, Victor Brox's band, then striking out on her own – and Pain & Glory represents the culmination of a quarter of a century's experience on the road and in the studio. The variety and depth of her vocal performances have grown year on year and are given a superb setting in this album's sweeping landscape of soul, blues, urban R&B, blues-rock, and singer-songwriter pop of the highest class

A bit of background: in the early '60s her dad, Victor Brox formed the Victor Brox Blues Train with singer Annette Reis, who would become Kyla's mother. They were, perhaps, the first interracial band on the scene, Annette having been born in Stockport of African-Canadian, English and Nigerian heritage. Victor went on to the influential Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation drawing the admiration of Jimi Hendrix, who dubbed Victor his “favourite white voice”. Robert Plant was also a teenage fan. Kyla sometimes performs with Victor and Annette to this day.

Kyla Brox is one of the very best soul-blues singers the British Isles has ever produced, and with the arrival of this beautifully composed cornucopia of an album, her time has come
